The Wyoming House on Monday voted 32-27 to pass legislation that would cease the state’s recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages and civil unions.
The measure, called House Bill 74, now heads to the state Senate, where its chances for passage appear good.
According to Casper Star-Tribune, “The Wyoming House has voted down similar legislation twice in recent years. But with many past opponents retiring or voted out of office in November, the bill passed the House 32-27. State Rep. Patrick Goggles, D-Ethete, was excused from voting.”
